No simple plan for you, unfortunately, but a couple ideas...
1. Start small. Remember, this is your journey and your just bringing your husband along for the ride. Right now he's not as invested as you. Do you tend to have bread and eggs for breakfast? Switch to whole grains or just downsize the bread portion (english muffin instead of a bagel). Prefer cereal? Get a healthier one (Kashi GoLean Crunch is delicious!) Move from full fat to low-fat yogurt, go from 2% to 1% milk.
2. There are plenty of websites out there with healthy versions of classic meals, so I would start there. (eatingwell.com, cookinglight.com are my favorites). Find some healthy versions of meals that you and your husband already like and test them out (read the comments - they often will have tweaks and hints that will make them even better)
3. If your husband doesn't like veggies, but likes fruit, have fruit available at all times. If you're making a veggie side, tell him it's for you, but he's welcome to try it. You'd be amazed at what people will eat if you don't make a big deal about it... also making veggies for you can be as easy as chopping up a head of broccoli, tossing it in a bowl covered in plastic wrap with a bit of water and microwaving for 2 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and it is absolutely delicious. My boyfriend used to hate broccoli until he had it this way. Which brings me to...
4. Experiment with different types of veggies and ways of cooking them. Often people who 'don't like' certain foods have just had a bad experience.
5. If all else fails, hide it! There are plenty of recipes where the veggies are small and hard to find, or just a part of the dish (think soups and stews, meatloaf, casseroles, etc...). Who doesn't like minestrone?
